Wise Mind: What are we trying to do here?

Is wise mind intuition? Intuition can be and is generally shaped by our experience; what we learn throughout life about protecting ourselves has great influence on our intuition, whereas wise mind is being employed in the present and is developed from seeking the balance between our present emotional experience and our current level of reasonable and rational thinking. As a result, intuition can be at varying degrees of departure from our wise mind. Ultimately wise mind is to be practiced. In our practice we will find that decisions are made considering ourselves, our knowing of ourselves, along with consideration of others. As we see, hear and feel ourselves in and across multiple situations we come to know ourselves as we currently are. As our decisions begin to reflect this "knowing" over time, we become known as we truly are. This is moving toward the state of mind - wise mind.
